University of California Irvine Medical Center has opened a 16-bed unit that features patient rooms with interactive tech systems, including digital white boards that display EHR data.
1. The medical center tapped smart hospital tech provider SONIFI Health to help launch the patient unit, accelerated by about a month to make room for more patients during the COVID-19 pandemic.
2. Each digital whiteboard in the patient rooms is integrated with the medical center’sEpic EHR system, allowings patients and families to view real-time updates about their specific condition, care team and care plan and other information.
3. The rooms also have interactive televisions that allow clinicians to access the most up-to-date information on the patient’s health and give patients the ability to view educational resources about their care plan and tools to communicate with their clinical team.
